Originally from Trinidad & Tobago, singer Blossom calls Portland, OR home. She spent her childhood playing in a steel drum band with family members and that set the tone for her taste in instruments & energy that she uses in her music today.
Blossom is an eclectic R&B jazz-singer who today feels right at home on stage. While it took her some time to grow in confidence, since 2014 she has been creating and performing non-stop. The positive effect music has had on her life is something Blossom now strives to share with the youth in her community. The city has recognized her talent and in addition to being constantly sought after for shows she has also received accolades such as being named one of Willamette Week’s best new bands in 2017.
In the last few years she has released multiple collaborative projects. In the summer of 2017 she released a project with producer Hot16 titled Tease. In the summer of 2018 she linked up with Ripley Snell for the dreamy EP Clout Atlas :: Dormiveglia. On her upcoming album MAYBE, due out Spring 2019, the focus is solely on Blossom and her story. For Blossom this new album is a coming of age story.
Butter Baby is a 5 piece, genre-defying group fronted by the biggest voice you've never heard. Fusing elements of rock, blues, and soul, this Portland based band of best friends is ready to blow your minds.
